Now that you’ve ceded authority to the government for the supposed sake of your safety and everyone else’s once, what now? What about the next time the would-be dictators, benevolent or not, want to strip your constitutional rights away under the penumbra of it being for your health and safety and that of everyone else?
You’ve Set A Precedent
You’ve set a precedent, a precedent that the government at any level can freely violate most parts of the 1st Amendment if they rationalize it as being for the sake of public. Precedents are hard to overturn once established, especially if they’ve been accepted by any court.
And, when a precedent favors the government by expanding their control, it will be used again, each time with a little broader scope or in a context a little further away from whatever crisis was the basis for setting that precedent.
I truly wish this was pure or close to pure sarcasm, but it isn’t. Christians in Democrat-controlled zones within our nation’s borders who try to attend Easter services – or even funerals some places – are at serious risk of being arrested by police enforcing various executive orders by those Democrat Governors. And, of course, if those police officers feel that those Christians resisted arrested, they can be killed by those same officers.
Yeah, tyranny and oppression is always only one exploitable crisis, manufactured or not, away. All it ever takes for would-be despots to violate our 1st Amendment rights is for them to stop fearing our use of our 2nd Amendment ones.
Despite meeting the current at the time requirements for being included in the next Democrat Primary Debate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI 2nd ) has been forbidden to attend, the DNC having decided to change the criteria after Super Tuesday so as to exclude her. This, of course, is more than a little likely to come as a surprise to many who didn’t know that Gabbard was still in the race, which is, in and of itself, not shocking since the Democrat “Leadership” and their pet media has essentially redacted Tulsi Gabbard’s entire campaign.
Revenge Is A Bitch
What seems to have happened is that Gabbard found out the hard way that revenge is a bitch, a bitch named Hillary Clinton, the de facto ruler of the Democrat party at this time. After all, in the early parts of the race to see which Democrat would run against- and likely lose to President Trump, Gabbard was trending quite well. Then, Hillary Clinton proclaimed that Gabbard was a “Russian Asset.” At that point, both her DNC and the ever-dutiful Lamestream media not only turned their collective backs upon Gabbard but actively shut her out and went silent on her and her campaign.
Tulsi Gabbard had been a Vice Chair in the DNC, but she quit to support Bernie Sanders during the debacle that was the 2016 Democrat Primary “race.” That’s the exact sort of thing that Hillary remembers and gets revenge for.
Heretics Must Burn
Gabbard sin, beyond earning Hillary’s ire, was that she was and is a heretic. She has shown insufficient orthodoxy and compliance with the Dems’ dogma of impeaching President Trump via any means at their disposal.
Yeah, the heads of the Democrat party and their media didn’t much more than that to cast out Gabbard. They’re not the sort that tolerates such heresy.
Why It Sort Of Matters
As an American, the only reasons that the redaction of Tulsi Gabbard matters are that she was the most potentially dangerously Democrat candidate and she’s been removed and that the DNC’s and Lamestream Media’s doing so is a nadir of hypocrisy that bears mention.
So yes, I’m quite pleased that the organization running the elections for our domestic enemies chose to “erase” the candidacy of the one person on their side that I thought could be a credible threat. However …
Tulsi Gabbard should have, the Democrats’ own oft-ranted criteria, received far different and better treatment by them, especially at this time.
Gabbard is a woman. The last woman in the Dems’ primary race
Gabbard is a “Person of Color” by Dem standards. Again, the last one in the Dems’ primary race
Gabbard is a Hindu. She is, in fact, the 1st Hindu Presidential candidate
Yeah, if the Democrats were even a little close in their own behavior to what they claim to want everyone to do and believe, they probably wouldn’t have redacted Gabbard’s campaign and they certainly wouldn’t have cut her out of the remaining debates.
Exactly! When it comes to the Obama Regime’s and the Hillary Campaign / DNC’s – At that point they were the same thing – attempts to derail Donald Trump’s bid for the Presidency through improper, if not outright illegal, use of Obama’s FBI, that many serious and specific mistakes aren’t mistakes. Instead, they’re a concerted and calculated illegal conspiracy to suborn the electoral process and install their party’s candidate in office.
No, those weren’t mistakes, in the sense that they weren’t accidental errors. They were all part of the Democrats’ conspiracy to undermine our democracy and crown Hillary as POTUS-Queen. No matter how often or how stridently they project this upon Americans and our President, they were and are the only ones spurning democracy in order to have their way with the nation.
Frankly, the Dems – especially those in Congress – should just come out and be utterly so utterly honest. They are, and have been since even before Trump was elected to the Presidency, engaged in a concerted and coordinated coup attempt against the American People’s duly elected POTUS. And they have made it clear that there is no act too base or too vile for them to engage in, even to the point of inciting their base to attempt mass assassinations.
